RDT Software Updates

Ver 1.31 update is available for download. The M30T outputs thermal jpg’s with a frame size of 1280 x 1024 but the Radiometric data (sensor) is 640 x 512. This mismatch can cause some processing errors. In version 1.31 when RDT detects this mismatch, the option to use “Original” when importing is removed.
